Well, well, well! Road down on the greyhound from Seattle the night before. Had my bottle of wine for the trip. Rolled into town, then took the bus to show. Had some paper that was quite different from the stuff we had up in Seattle. Needless to say I am sure it was made special for the event! What a day, nothing like I had ever seen before. There were definatley some great moments. Far from the shows at the indoor venues. It was sooo hot that day. We were all so dusty from the hay field that when we got to the hotel(8 to 10 of us in one room), the pool turned brown! It was my first Diamond Duprees. Good times.

I was there...
The day after my 25th birthday...excellent hash cookies for sale...they let us bring in a keg of beer...trippin' in the hot sunshine...the twirlers up front were asked to move away from the stage due to the enormous clouds of dust they were kicking up; they didn't and the boys cut the show short..first ever performances of "Day Job" and "West LA Fadeaway" (notice slight lyric differences from later versions). No traffic control so it took us 4 hours in the back of a pick-up to get out of the place...other than that a good show; Brent was sizzling..."Black Peter" glistens like a star...fun times, sadly gone now.

I would have given my left one to have been able to be at this show (and the 1972 Creamery Show!). It may not be smokin' from start to finish but it is a clean show with good song selection and strong vocals from Jerry. I have noticed that the short break between the wonderful '82 summer tour and this show (2.5 weeks)gave Jerry's voice a little time to recover. Spinning in the blistering Oregon sun half-naked with a lot of beautiful hippie chicks around would have been pure bliss.

Like a family picnic which you were forced to attend where the gorgeous swimsuit model daughter friend of the family shows up in her convertible and spirits you away this show rocks you well into the night.
